No idea where to next year???

Post by DawidT » 06 Nov 2019 11:42

Hi,

I am sitting with a dilemma..... :helpsign: Where should I go and spend my next leave in May 2020? There are way to many options........ Thought about Richtersveld, KNP then into Zim, Kgalagadi again - RSA side, Garden route, Nam, Bots........... Pleeeeeeeeeeease help!!!!

What would you do with 3 weeks? Any routes / trips you have done or would love to do? I need that seed planted in my head!

The wife is not helping, only reply is " Jy kan kies, ek gaan hierdie jaar saam waar jy wil gaan" :surprised: (maybe I am not listening to what is actually said :think: )

My thinking is, someone out there has done what I would like to do or I don't know yet that I would like to do it! Why reinvent the wheel and do all this fancy planning if it is done already :oldtimer:

Wil jy toer of op een plek bly?

Waar was jy al reeds?

Kamp of bly in huise/challets?
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Loaded statement :thumbup:

Peter is right, NB questions. New places, soft 4x4, camping/chalets, budget, how far?

My wife loves the Canyon-Kruger-Moz (Tinus) experience, but in chalets... 3 weeks is perfect.

Ek het gedink om te kamp (offroad karavaan) en dit te meng met chalets / lodges. Ek kan nie stilsit op een plek nie, sal langste so 4 dae bly maar dan trek ons weer. die roete kan wissel van serious 4X4 tot teerpad, die verskeidenheid maak dit lekker.

Tinus, jou idee klink goed om weer Moz toe te gaan. Miskien moet ek RTT gaan en JohnBoy se ding doen - KNP en dan direk in Moz in. Is daar so n roete om te doen as ek alleen toer, waar is jou gunsteling Lodge gelee?

Pieter, ek was al die hele land vol, behalwe die Noorde en Rightersveld. Al die buur lande ook al besoek. My budget is nog nie gedoen nie, maar dit sal wees om so maks 6000km te ry en vir drie weke se verblyf te betaal, net ek en die Vrou.

Richtersveld is next level. Dis n ander wêreld. Doen dan sommer Ais-Ais deel van Namibie ook. Dit is heeltemal iets anders.


Daar doooooooer onder staan die bakkies. Al die pad by die stuk klip opgeklim en toe ons bo kom was daar n pad. :redface: :doh:

I have long been dreaming of crossing the border into Moz at Pafuri, then through the river, then north into Zim into Gonarhezhou. That could be the start of an epic trip, but it seems as if Zim's camping fees are a bit crazy.

Ha! when i was reading the first post I thought of suggesting Gonarhezhou! I have no clue about it, but Ive been slowly but surely doing a bit of reading on it, it looks like a nice adventure to me.

The Gonerazhou trip seems like a good idea. Maybe I can come back through Moz and add the Tinus "Lodge" idea and work my way down to Ponta de Ouro, circling back to Witbank. Now to see where to camp along the route - KNP, Gonarezhou, Moz, Maybe a week each. Advise would be appreciated!
Tijmen, the Richtersveld is also a must and will be kept on my bucket list.

Check out this nice article.
